Nice soup but I added an onion and a garlic clove, softened in a little oil at the start. Also only used 1L of stock and stirred through a tablespoon of herby Philadelphia at the end, very tasty!

I added the onion and celery at the suggestion of someone below and it made broccoli soup much more interesting, thank you. I'll definitely make it again.

A fabulous soup with only basic ingredients. I added an onion and a stick of celery softened in olive oil for five mins at the beginning. great fresh taste and low fat if you forget the cheesey stuff. I'll be making this again - especially with the slightly dry head of broccoli lingering at the bottom of the veggie drawer.

This was soup was a lovely colour and surprisingly good for such a small amount of ingredients but unfortunately I added too much salt which made me extremely thirsty afterwards! The cheese toasties were good with it. Instead of putting them in the oven, I put them in a toastabag and popped them in the toaster.

This soup was ok but needed something else to it. I added cream and left to cool ing the fridge. On re-heating i added Blue Cheese along with a helping of pepper. Made such a difference. Toasties go well with it!

The soup itself could do with pepping up a bit - you defo need the toasts with them which are very nice.
